No pictures at the moment, but probably could get some over the weekend.
I built a shelf in the engine compartment for the starting battery, filled the two spots that came with the boat, and built a fiberglass box that doubles as a battery box and tank lid for my bilge water tank. Have yet to build a shelf in the bilge sump for the SSB battery.

Sorry I can't help you with the track, but I am very curious as to where you are stowing 5 batteries???
Got any pictures?

Have a question to throw to the group. The previous owner of Boreas #34 sold the spinnaker and I assume also the mast T-Track for the pole since it is missing.
I've searched high and low, but can't find any track
with the hole spacing of the old track which is 2 15/16 and was about 4' long. If anyone in the group has any of this track I would be interested, or if anyone has a source where I can get it.
This is kind of a last ditch effort before I fill the holes.
Currently I'm preparing the boat for cruising and have been working on her off and on for the past three years.
Major Projects Completed to Date:
Removed water tank under cockpit and replaced with a poly fuel tank.
Removed leaking S/S V fuel tank under V berth and replaced same with a
poly 25 gal. water tank.
Installed a holding tank and plumbed head.
Installed an Isotherm refrigeration unit.
Installed a Princess 3 burner range.
Refitted and plumbed the 100 gal. built-in bilge water tank.
Presently installing 5 batteries and cabling.
Yet to Do:
Install, solar panels & controller, ham/ssb radio, chart plotter, wind generator, Monitor Wind Vane, windlass, hatch storm hood, second forestay, paint topside, haul-out.... whew.
My plan when the boat is finished is to truck her to Florida and cruise the Caribbean.
